Fundamentals of Aspen Generic Dynamic Optimization Technology

This course will help you prepare for the certification exam and the exam fee is waived with this course.
Dynamic Optimization is a new area of economic opportunity in Production Optimization. Aspen GDOT improves overall operating margins by closing the loop between planning/economics objectives and actual operations of process units through real time coordination of several APC applications across a broad envelope.
In this class, learn how to define and configure Aspen GDOT applications, estimate benefits, align with planning and scheduling work processes and follow best practices for sustaining benefits. 

Audience:

APC engineers, Planners, and Schedulers, customers with an interest in Aspen GDOT or about to implement Aspen GDOT
